Hi Bold Bakers!

Whipping cream seems like a little bit of a no brainer right? Put cream in a bowl and whip with a whisk until it is thick.

However, it seems to be one thing that the Bold Baking Community struggles with and for good reason. In every country, cream is different. It comes in different forms and is called different things.

There is whipping cream, single cream, heavy cream and so on. It is a bit over whelming to be honest and you want to make use you buy the right cream because it is an expensive ingredients and you don’t want to mess it up.

Do you have trouble making my No Machine Ice Cream? I hear a lot that when trying to whip cream for my ice cream that it over whips. The only way to stop this from happening is to teach you what you need to look for as you are whipping. By knowing just by looking at the cream is a skill you can easily learn. Watch the video below where I show you where to stop and how not to over whip cream.

Here are a few countries where I know which cream works best for whipping: 

  • UK: Whipping Cream
  • Netherlands: Slagroom
  • Philippines: Whipped cream or heavy cream

How to Whip Cream Successfully:

1. Use cold cream – Cream has to be cold to whip. If it is not cold from the fridge it is very hard to get it to whip to stiff peaks.

2. Chill your bowl – If you live in a particularly warm or humid climate, chill your bowl in the fridge. This will help the cream to stay cold while whipping.

3. Under whip rather than over whip – If you are making my 2 Ingredient No Machine Ice Cream  and are worried if you have whipped it too much, then stop whipping. It’s better to under whip then over whip. Over whipping cream can separate and make butter.

4. Keep a close eye – Never walk away from a machine while cream is whipping or you will make butter. Once it eventually starts to thicken it will thicken quite fast.

5. Watch my How To Video – This will show you what you should be looking for when whipping cream and also when you should stop whipping.

Do you know how many things you can make homemade like Condensed MilkDIY All Natural Food Coloring and Rolled Fondant to name a few. You can find all of my Bold Baking Basics here.

Can you show a recipe of making powdered whipping cream into which we can just add water and then whip it… There are many products sold like whipping powder but can you show how to make that powder at home and use it whenever needed by just adding water…

Hey Gemma, I’m a big fan of your recipes and channel. I’m from India and since finding heavy cream is so hard here, I wanted you to add a personal discovery of mine to the country recommendations. I’ve used Milky Mist Cream for all recipes that need heavy/whipping cream eg. Marscapone, Homemade ice cream etc. Please add it and recommend it for all Indians.
